recovering from an ED || a beautiful journey of various volumes

? “recovery is not a destination where one day you will wake up and feel fixed but rather it’s a slow mending process that follows an imperfect line where progress is made over time. along the way your eating disorder will make it’s presence known as it fluctuates between being very quiet or very loud. use this as reassurance that you are healing by the mere fact that you are aware of the sounds it makes and in charge of the volume. “ ? finding this quote from Tina Klaus of Don’t Live Small?was a sign from the universe, i swear. i have read it multiple times knowing how much i must?remember that my eating disorder may flare+ fluctuate, but i remain in charge of the internal volume. i remain in recovery. so i’m being a bit more candid in this post, less about tasty healthy treats?+ more about what i have experienced as well as continue to live with. i’m curious who else had a difficult time…

Tips & Tricks to Losing Weight & Keeping it Off!

TRIED-AND-TRUE TIPS TO WEIGHT LOSS AND KEEPING IT OFF: PORTION CONTROL. It’s no secret that portion sizes have gotten larger and thus, so have we! There’s nothing worse than ordering a meal at your favourite restaurant to find that half way through it, you are full. But of course you continue eating because it tastes so good and then leave inevitably leaving bloated, overfilled and sometimes sick. (Please tell me you’ve done that too!) The only cure for this, is to pay attention to serving sizes by reading nutrition labels and teaching yourself to understand them. Make it “normal” to measure out your servings, eat only one helping and resist the urge to “clean the plate”- No easy feat! HELPFUL HINT: I always eat my meals on a small plate rather than a dinner plate, therefore I can fill it right up which make me feel like I’m eating lots but really I’m eating a smaller amount.  BE MINDFUL. Get to know your body! Pay attention to what you are…

Banana Republic Factory: Sweater and T-shirt Cheap Buys!

?? Hello! During today’s little afternoon shopping date, R and I went to the Banana Republic Factory store in Long Island and I purchased two items: sweater & t-shirt! I like to blog and put up pictures of clothes that I bought recently (in this case…today) so that if you’re interested in the deals, you can go out and get it, too! :)??? ?This sweater is soft and warm (too warm right now!!!). I got it to wear for work. It’s nice and casual and you’ll like the price, too! Btw: I am 5’7 and I purchased a size S for this sweater. It is still a bit loose and I like it that way! The original price was $59.99 and of course there’s a 40% off sale on this price…and then I got another 40% on top of the sale price, because RetailMeNot had a coupon for extra 40% off both regular and sale items at Banana Republic Factory stores which ends August 24th. It’s pretty…

“Why Fat Girls Shouldn’t Wear Bikinis”

Yesterday I came across a video by model Loey Lane. On May 15, 2015 she posted a video on her YouTube channel about the reasons people express their disdain for plus size women in bikinis. You can see the video here: I always find fat shaming to be a very interesting topic. I have to say, I don’t disagree with Loey. No one should be made to feel a certain way because of what they are wearing or how someone else feels about their body. We definitely live in a country full of people that feel it is their duty to shove their opinion down the throats of their opposers. When I was in high school, I recall having a conversation with my brother that went a bit like this: Him – Dude fate people are disgusting. Me – I can’t believe you said that. *laughter and shock* That’s so disrespectful. Him – It’s true. Me – That’s your opinion. Him – *Laughing* No. That’s everyone’s opinion. Given that my brother can be an asshole, …
